Museum of the African Diaspora Announces Change In Executive Leadership

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- The Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) announced today that Grace C. Stanislaus, Executive Director, has resigned effective June 28, 2013 to pursue new interests and opportunities. Deborah Santana, Board Vice Chair will serve as MoAD's Interim Executive Director.

"I am very thankful to Grace for her achievements and service to MoAD in advancing its mission, and wish her well in her new endeavors. We'll miss her," said Wade Rose, MoAD Board Chair. "We have made great strides at MoAD. The museum is blessed with a dedicated staff, and as with any leadership transition we will take this opportunity to plan its next stage."

Ms. Stanislaus has been a driving force behind several successful exhibitions and programs, reinvigorated the museum's individual and corporate giving programs, expanded the Diaspora Curriculum Project to a more international perspective and audience, and strengthened operations. MoAD Vanguard, the museum's young professionals group has grown significantly under her tenure, and the museum has increased in visibility within and outside of the Bay Area.

"I pondered this decision for some time trying to balance my commitment and passion for MoAD, my excitement about our progress and the museum's future against my growing desire to take time to reflect on my cultural arts career working for worthy organizations like MoAD and to determine my path forward," said Ms. Stanislaus. "It's been my pleasure and privilege to work with the Board of Directors and staff over the past three and a half years. Throughout my career, I have truly not worked with a team that is more dedicated, hard working and committed to an organization and its mission. My time at MoAD has been inspiring, engaging, educational and transformative."

The Board of Directors will begin a process to recruit a new Executive Director while MoAD continues on its path of educating and enlightening audiences about the African Diaspora and expanding the museum's unique offerings to the art world.
